Touche my friend, Touche.

I learned an important lesson today...

Lil' Miss Drama Queen (LMDQ) was pitching a fit about not having her tennis shoes for PE (in the eyes of a 7 year old, this is huge.. that means sitting out during PE... I would think of it as blessing because then I wouldn't have to run or break a sweat but whatev).

As she's in hysterics, I calmly approached her and said, "LMDQ, how do you think we can solve this problem? Let's think for a minute.. take a deep breath and try to solve the problem together."

She looks me straight in the eye (and stops crying for a moment) to say, "Mrs. L, if I knew how to solve the problem, I wouldn't be crying!" and proceeds to cry again.

Touche, my friend.. touche.

FYI- we did solve the problem. Daddy brought her shoes. I thought of that one all by myself, thankyouverymuch.
